    Looking to buy a new quad and debating between a Foreman Rubicon 500 or Grizzly 550 (w/no power steering).


    They are similar in pricing.

    Reliability hands down goes to Honda. Also like the top mounted headlight.

    Grizzly has fuel injection, 11.8 ground clearance compared to 7.5 for the Foreman. Also had independent rear compared to a swingarm.

    Any opinions? Anybody a dealer with good pricing?

    Honda all the way. I own a few ranchers, I can't kill them. They always start, no problems other than the usual, loose brake cables, plastic rivits come loose on body, par for the course for the beatings I give them. Change the oil regularly and you are good to go. Get your price from a dealer, then Try Rusty Palmer in PA, cheaper than anywhere you will be able to find.

    I know Hondas are great.. I have a Suzuki my buddy has a Grizzly my other buddy has a foreman All 3 brands are quality and never had an issue. Get the one you think serves your needs more both bikes are good you cant kill a Yamaha either.

    im a honda guy. if you can live without having all the bells and whistles then do it. but independent rear suspension is so nice, having the extra clearance is awesome and then fuel injection just shits all over carb. at the same rate all them things break faster. my brother has a fuel injected king quad and his ecu just took a shit. new computer=400. i was always a Kawasaki or honda fan for two stroke dirt bikes but last year i bought my first yamaha anything and it was a yz250. if i ever get another dirt bike it will be a yz250. best bike i ever owned
